Ahh, brownies. Soft, squidgy and insanely delicious. It’s no wonder why everyone loves ’em! To celebrate the launch of the new Ottar Chocolate peanut butter spreads, I decided to make a batch of peanut butter brownies.
This is a really quick and easy recipe, perfect for getting that chocolate fix. However, the addition of Ottar’s miso and black sesame peanut butter elevates these brownies from good, to AMAZING.
Miso peanut butter brownies recipe
- 185g unsalted butter
- 185g best dark chocolate
- 85g plain flour
- 40g cocoa powder
- 100g peanut butter
- 3 large eggs
- 275g golden caster sugar
- Handful of salted peanuts
- Preheat your oven to 160C/gas 4.
- Split the butter and dark chocolate into small chunks and add to a bowl.
- Use a bain-marie (a bowl rested above a saucepan of boiling water) or a microwave to melt the butter and chocolate together.
- Leave the melted butter and chocolate for a minute or two to cool slightly
- Sieve the flour and cocoa powder into a bowl to remove any lumps.
- Whisk together the eggs and sugar for 3-8 minutes, until thick and creamy (like a milkshake). The mixture should become pale and roughly double the volume.
- Pour the chocolate/butter mixture over the eggs and fold the whole mixture together gently (try not to knock out the air). Keep folding gently until the mixture is one consistent colour.
- Resieve the flour and cocoa powder onto the mixture.
- Fold in the flour and cocoa powder until the mixture is thick and fudgey.
- Spoon in the peanut butter in small doses and mix them in gently. You want to be left with well dispersed clumps of peanut butter.
- Line a shallow 20cm square tin with parchment paper.
- Pour the peanut butter brownie mixture into the tin. Use a spatular to ensure it fills all of the corners and smooth the top.
- Sprinkly over a few roughly chopped salted peanuts.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the top has a slight crust and the centre doesn’t wobble.
- Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely before eating (if you can wait!!).
A word of warning: once you try these brownies, you’ll want to make them every week! Apologies in advance… 🙂
